[video clip] >> we need to have a teacher evaluation system that is based on teachers being professionals and not part of some collective trade union bargaining process. we have a system to reward teachers based on an industrial and unionized model that is completely inappropriate for the 21st century, completely inappropriate. there are incredibly fine teachers that get paid less even though they are doing the lord's work consistently over time and there are teachers that are mediocre that get paid more because they have been there longer. long did it is not the deter
versus florida. you cut taxes you get more growth. you raise taxes you put people out of work and you bankrupt your state. >> we have you for the whole two hours so i want to get to a quick piece of president obama's op-ed because we already did governor romney's op-ed, i'll have you comment on it and then we're going to continue to chat about this all morning. he writes by the end of president clinton's second term our economy created 23 million new jobs, incomes rose, poverty fell, deficits became the biggest surplus in history. and what his point in part of this op-ed is if you look to the last democrat who he says he's shaping himself in that, in that image, if you will, you know, he was successful in that kind of a strategy. >>> the first two years of president clinton's administration weren't terribly interesting. the economy didn't do very well. however, in november of 1994, when the republicans won the house and the senate, all of a sudden, the stock market started going up, job creation started going up, we got a cut in the capital gains tax, a cut in the capital gains tax, a
thing for the american people. host: we will move onto native who is a republican in florida. caller:my name is nat. i crossed the aisle to the democratic side. the reason for it is because i believe the president of's agenda is on a positive role. it takes time to correct the course of this country. by the time his actions of three years ago catches up, it will probably be his sixth year in office. then you will probably start seeing the yield of all of the effort he put an two or three years ago. some of us really want to be able to eat that big bird. i think we woke up in the morning and realize some people are going to have to realize how to season their crow and enjoy eating at. if we do not continue to stay on the president's course, we will find our difficulties will not and that quickly. host: the reelected president called for bipartisanship and addressing for priorities over the next four years. reducing the deficit, overhauling the tax code, revising immigration laws, and reducing the nation's dependence on foreign oil. some key elements as he sets out for a second term. w
the unemployment rates, nevada, 11.8%. colorado still 8%. wisconsin, ohio, new hampshire, virginia, florida, iowa. look at iowa, 5.2%. it's essentially full employment in iowa but they are concerned about debt, deficit and the quality of jobs you are getting. let's start with the ohio jobless rates. no gop candidate won an election without winning ohio. ohio makes presidents. today, 7% is the unemployment rate, less than when the president took office. that is better than the national average. they have been adding manufacturing jobs. not as many by any stretch of the imagination that they lost. look at florida and the trend of the jobless rate in florida. it's exactly where it was when the president took office. still higher than the national average. it has been coming down. housing is still a major issue here. in virginia, 13 electoral votes, jobless rate is low now. a 5.9% in virginia. but, it's still higher than when the president took office. essentially flat in virginia. it's going to be interesting because superstorm sandy could have an effect. power outages there. we don't know what tues

. victor is on the phone from florida on the independent line. caller: good morning. host: how are you feeling? caller: the radiation is not my kind of therapy, believe me. i want to wish everybody a happy veterans day. i mean it from the soul, not the words that come out of tv. host: when did you serve? caller: from 1948 until 1972. my comment is on the deficit. all the parties have reasons for what is causing the deficit. most of americans know that -- i have cancer, yes. a tumor. it will cost the american tax payers over half a million dollars just for a what i will be going through on chemotherapy and radiation. a few years back, i found that i had implants that cost $285,000. they want to charge me $1,285 for that. i wrote to the state attorney's office to justify that amount of money. nobody answered my question outside of the state attorney's office. that upset me. so i sat down. what would be the best thing that i could do, which i wrote to obama, i wrote to congress, i wrote to all in medicare -- how to solve this health care problem we have? that is the biggest part of the de

's got to stop. they're all doing it. and it's just major corruption. host: fran, jacksonville, florida. yes, we're listening. caller: oh, thank you. i was calling, wanted to know if i heard that excerpt from the wall street journal article correctly, that the president might be relenting on his pledge to not sign anything that didn't have that increase with the upper 1%. host: well, i think it's a little more nuanced than that. it says here again, here's the headline. obama is flexible of highest tax rates. and what it says is that it's not so much that he won't sign anything, it's more of how high the tax rates would go. so does that -- how do you see that? how do you reed that? caller: i would really be disappointed in that, because he's been fighting for that since the beginning. he relented a few years ago in order to save the unemployment insurance for the unemployed people and some other stipulations that were being held hostage by the g.o.p. but he doesn't have to do that any more. and right after he did that, they called that his tax breaks for the wealthy. and he absolutely di

. in florida, percentage of hispanic voters went up to 70% from 14% 2008, and the composition of the hispanic vote changed and has grown very different than what it was just a few years ago with many more puerto ricans making up the share of this hispanic vote in florida. what that meant nationally was that despite all predictions, democrats were able to keep their edge in the overall electorate. a shock to many people that overall partisan composition of the electorate looked so similar to 2008 with democrats holding a six-point edge. the other big demographics story of tuesday's election of course was women. i mean, we had, our first goal after the first debate when romney did so well and obama did so poorly showed the gender gap almost closing entirely. i mean, it had to be a shock for a lot of democrats to look at that poll. there were other polls that showed the same thing. romney really made gains among women after that first debate, in party was seen as a little bit more moderate. the issues that came up i in the debate were not necessarily, very few social issues if you recall coming
carolina was the only battleground state that romney won. >> that is correct. florida is still out. this year is turned out to be irrelevant. what did the republicans miss? >> practically anybody who was brown or black, procter we anybody who believes that immigration is an issue that needs to be tackled. was a case where the republican party is stampeding towards prevalence if they don't catch -- stampeding toward irrelevance up to then't catch new america and the changing demographics. you cannot have a ruling coalition that is virtually all white. you had president obama put together this new rising coalition and put together enough of the old democratic coalition to win. he got more than 70% of hispanics. young voters. if you vote once to twice as a democrat, history shows that there will be a lifetime democrats. the republicans are missing the idea of trying to expand their percentage of a shrinking electorate. this is becoming a majority- minority nation. this is probably the last time the republicans love a chance to win like this. >> let's talk about why this happened. how
, florida, is evening tore sell it before the end of the year because of the pending fiscal cliff. unless congress acts by year end, capital gains taxes will go up. for homeowners with a lot of equity in their homes, selling now can make a big difference. >> if you're looking for someone who's selling their property at a $10 million sales price and they have a $5 million cost in the property, there's a potential $5 million profit, capital gains being 5% right now. they're estimated to go up to 25% next year. so in theory, there's $500,000 savings for both seller and buy tore get the deal done. >> reporter: even if you have an averaged-priced home, the fiscal cliff negotiations could have a major impact on you. congress could limit the amount of home mortgage interest homeowners can write off their taxes. one proposal from the simpson/bowles commission would cap the deduction at $500,000. lawmakers may also limit tax breaks for second homes. distressed homeowners could also see major changes ahead. the mortgage debt relief act, which waives the tax obligation on portions of the mortgage s

. egypt has taken it up a notch. florida-based pastor terry jones was also sentenced. most of them live in the united states, all are outside of egypt and are probably unlikely to ever face the sentence. they say the court found the defendants guilty of harming national unity, insulting and publicly attacking islam and spreading false information through the film that mocks the profi prophet muhammad. >> a senator saying it is immoral to have big pay disparities. he says hedge fund managers make as much in a couple of minutes as navy seals do in an entire year and is arguing to a progressive group that that is wrong, morally, socially and he says it's destructive and tears apar aeu a part what holds us together. with all due respect to the navy seals, he's right they don't get paid enough. his report is that it's socially wrong and it's immoral for there to be a pay disparity like that in this country. monica your thoughts. >> first of all the united states was built on the idea of equality of opportunity not equality of outcome. what you have now, megyn is a modern democratic party whi
to where we have to -- we're in ohio every time, we have to win florida and ohio every time. what we need to do is be competitive throughout the united states, and i think young people want a less aggressive foreign policy. they don't want to put people in 20 years in jail for marijuana use or nonviolent crimes. and i think they want a little bit different approach to immigration. >> okay. you say you want to be part of the national dialogue. perhaps a bigger part of it. we shall see. senator rand paul, thank you very much, we appreciate it. >> thank you. >>> and now to the face to face meeting today between u.n. ambassador susan rice and her chief republican critics. ambassador rice on capitol hill, just this morning, to meet with the people you see on your screen here. you have senator john mccain, lindsey graham, kelly ayotte. she went to address concerns they have over statements the ambassador made over the u.s. mission in benghazi on september 11th that left ambassador chris stevens and three other americans dead. i want you to listen to what senator graham, republican south carolin

student in florida who said here's what she does to complete her assignments that require internet access. she drives to her local library at night after it is closed, and sits in the parking lot where she can get wi-fi hookup. well, that's not a good answer to the digital divide is a real issue and smart government action can help drive universal access. this is what drove the fcc last year to adopt a once in a generation comprehensive overhaul of the $4.5 billion a year universal service fund. we transformed it from a telephone focused program and a waste one at that, too inefficient program focused on universal broadband. so these pillars and priorities not only guide our policy work in the united states, a guide our international engagement in the itc sector. and they have in the past, historically, in ways that have had profound effect. to explain how, let me take a detour into the air by spring. in egypt last year when the government shutdown the internet and shut down global service, many asked how are they able to do that. what does it mean that they can do that. it's a very impor
